For users with big viewport submenus should have a place.
My own css is enough at the moment, but good to know there are more solutions out there.
Thx for help.  :wink:

I'm sorry to say but bootstrap themselve took out the 3rd level from the navbar

That's exactly the reason why it's not working with Madoven. I recommend not to use submenus, they are horrible on every touch device and/or mobile device!

Just updated
There is now a sample css, so you don't need to modify my theme if you want to add css!

Just before: I don't use boostrap myself but I like the idea to prepare bootstrap for easy use with WB. This template to me is a very goog solution for a bootstrap starting point.

Reason for my posting:

Yesterday in the german forum we had a hard discusision about bootstrap and WB. It is known that there are some projects realized with bootstrap. But most of the users there think, that one of the biggest problem of bootstrap is to make it easy for an editor to ad elements to the page ...

I myself believe (after a nearer look), that this template is a great work and easy starting point to develop bootstrap projects with wb. Last night I thought about this ...

The Idea: make template a little step easier for editors:

As I knew (note once more: I am not a user of bootstrap myself, so this is just an idea) has bootstrap al lot of (inline-)elements which only needs one class to get the style.

To prepare such elements to easy acces for WB in a templaye is very easy:
Just prepare the file 'editor.styles.js' of the CKEditor with typical bootstrap elements
... add the file to the template
... ... and voila, - the elements are on the fingertips of the editor
... ... ... badges, labels, wells, jumbotrons, muted paragraphs, round images, a.s.o.

I suppose, that a lot of bootstrap elements could be prepared this way.
And the advantage is: the work has to be only once for every oher bootstrap template :-)

I attached an example (untested and just as an proof of concept work) posting for some examples.

My Suggestion:

Maybe someone who knows the bootstrap framework better than me (ore the author himself?) likes to prepare a ck-style-file with the most common and typical eleements and would like to post it here. Than it can be added to the template easily?

(If there someone would like to go forward on more complex bootstrap-elements:
Complex html structures can be adviced to the editor too in the CK file editor.templates.js .
Maybe somene else likes to prepare such an file with typical complex bootstrap elements.)

Technical Instruction for CK file:

Just create a subfolder and copy file to this folder.
Now the template is prepared with bootstrap adaptions for CK Editor

(Please note: the attached file is not proofed as it is an idea!)

Don' forget: this posting is just an impulse to the bootstrap users here because I like the idea ... and maybe there will be someone interested in this ... but it is nothing what needs to be done ;-)


But maybe you would like to think another step forward:

Maybe it could be possible to find an additional wb-bootstrap-download-place where this file could be downloaded for other users for reuse to prepare ohter starting-bootstrap-templates ... or a wb bootstrap project.

(And dreaming of some more steps forward: if there are some others who like to work on base on this template and would like some other starting-templates (maybe from for wb (the charme is that only the html structure in the index.php and the info.php neede to be prepared and no css needs to be written) ... maybe step for step and as time goes by it is possible to create a little wb-bootstrap-plattform with two, three or four typical wb-bootstrap-starting-templates ...)

I think:
As there had been realizes some wb projects with bootstrap yet ...
... and more and more postings here are about bootstrap ...
.... bootstrap is a theme for wb ;-)

Just as Feedback:

Off course I like this template.
But there seems to be a little Problem on the demo page (I don't know if it has been reported yet):

When I open the login box and close it with cancel button
the moadl box diappears
than the (light dark) background disapperas
than the modal box appears for a short moment once again
and disappears aggain ;-)

Yesterday I postet a suggestion to make the access to bootstrap elements easier in this wb template.

Today I posted a little tutorial how to make it easy to offer an editor to ad gridded elements like a item row to a webpage using list. Once more same system: the editor (without knowledge only chooses as style form the combo box.)

The tutorial was special for frameworks with padded grids.  Bootstrap is such an framework but there are other Frameworks too which uses a similar system. So I posted it in an separate thread:,28240.0.html#new

Maybe you are general interessted in such a solution for bootstrap templates for wb or you would like to ad some special css to this template so the editors can reate item rows on the fly ... than have a closer look to the tutorial. A SASS mixin for direkt use or a clean css example (needs to be prepared with your properties) is added too.

An example what is meant with gridded items is shown on the picture.
The screenshot is done from wb template

Yesterday in the german forum we had (once more) a discussion about WB and bootstrap. One reaction was, that fishstäbchenbrenner wrote a tutorial how an 'typical and normal' editor of a webproject (without further html knowledge) can ad bootstap-columns to a page. Even the tutorial is on german I would like to inform about the posting here:,28244.0.html

He uses the wb module: 'Members'
It is an multiused(!) module which also can help to prepare special html-structures to a page.

As it was not(!) designed to be a special column module or even a special wb-bootstrap-module it is a workarround until someone would like to do such a special column module or even special wb-bootstrap-module for wb :-)

Others/further ideas/solutions/modules/snippets are welcome :-)

@Yetiie: Hi, thanks for all you comments and tips. That Dreamweaver-like WYSIWYG-Editor for templates is an interesting idea, but I think you shouldn't mix template and content to much. For me WebsiteBaker is just for content, I don't even want my clients to be able to change the layout of the page; If there editor is really powerful it could help the developer though! I'm curious what you've built, this member module seems to be very cool!

Regarding your issue with the reappearing modal dialog; I know, and it's fixed since months in Bootstrap, but WebsiteBaker is using a jQuery Version from 2011, and Bootstrap dropped supporting this superold version months ago too. This should really be fixed:,25355.0.html
